ATHN Data Quality Counts is helping HTCs enrich the ATHNdataset.

The promise of using data for research, surveillance, and quality improvement relies on data that is complete and accurate. ATHN Data Quality Counts provides the critical funding needed to build data management capacity across the network of HTCs and enrich the ATHNdataset.

The application phase of Round 12 of ATHN Data Quality Counts is now open.

Round 12 of ATHN Data Quality Counts applications are due August 12, 2020.
